DIY College Dorm/Apartment Decor: Flower Vase for Under $15

Hey, pretty girl!

College is expensive! And when you add on the cost of buying items for your new room on top of tuition, it can be a lot. Going into college, especially with people on Pinterest and TikTok showing off their super extra dorm rooms, there can be a lot of pressure to intensely decorate your room. While you want to make your room feel like a home with some decor, there are ways to do it without breaking the bank. This simple DIY vase can be made for under $15 and is perfect for fake or real flowers!!

Step 1: Buy a Welch’s Sparking Juice, acrylic paint in the color of your choice & fake/real flowers.

Step 2: Drink the juice and clean out the bottle (be sure to get rid of the sticky residue from the label).

Step 3: Paint the bottle with the acrylic paint. Let dry between layers until you reach your desired color.

Step 4: Once the vase is completely dry, cover with Mod Podge to prevent chipping.

Step 5: Put flowers inside and enjoy!

With Love, Marin
